Updates for the Fendt combine harvesters

Reliable, high-quality machines stand out with continuous innovation and improvements. The Fendt IDEAL model year 2022 comes with added options in lane guidance and straw distribution. New features for Fendt straw walker combine harvesters, too.

Working to an accuracy of 2 cm with the Fendt IDEAL

A lane guidance system increases the efficiency of your machines and precision when working the fields. By using lane guidance with the RTK correction signal, the entire fleet works the fields by consistently following the set tracks, avoiding any offsetting. Controlled Traffic Farming is also possible thanks to VarioGuide with RTK.

Fendt IDEAL customers have enjoyed the VarioGuide tracking system and a NovAtel or Trimble receiver as standard features on their combine harvesters for several years now. Now you can also order the correction signal RTK pre-installed at a track accuracy of 2 cm.

Fendt meets European approval standards

The range of tyres for the models Fendt IDEAL 7 and Fendt IDEAL 8 has been expanded to make travelling safe on the narrow roads typical of Germany, France and southern Europe. The 710/70 R42 tyre meets European approval standards for driving on winding country roads and navigating tight spaces. The Fendt IDEAL 7 and Fendt IDEAL 8 boast an outer width of less than 3.30 metres with a maximum contact area. All previous tyre options are still available.

Even better performance

The cleaning system of the Fendt IDEAL 9 has been reworked, helping to boost the machine's overall performance even further, with improved cleaning results. In the new cleaning system, the grain drops down to the top sieve through two curved double-drop steps. Thanks to the curved shape, the laws of physics see the heavy grains gather in the lower section while the lighter parts accumulate above.

The curved steps of the cleaning system provide a wider air outlet, which can significantly increase the air volume and make the cleaning process even more efficient. With two drop levels, most of the short straw and chaff is separated on the first level. The remaining non-grain components are separated on the second. The cleaning system works over four sections, two return floors ensure even distribution and coverage across the preparation floor.

The ActiveSpread SwingFlow straw distributor has been specially designed for tough harvesting conditions. ActiveSpread SwingFlow is an extra straw spreading option that achieves a more even distribution even in humid harvest conditions.

New features on Fendt straw walker combine harvesters

All E, L and C series Fendt straw walker combine harvesters meet the European emissions standard Stage V.

Selected models with Tier 2 emissions stage are available for the markets of Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. These include the models Fendt 5185 E, Fendt 5255 L and 5255 L MCS, Fendt 6275 L, Fendt 6275 L MCS and Fendt 6336 C and Fendt 6336 C PL.

In 2020, the Fendt 5275 C SL (SuperLevel) was introduced as a new 5-straw walker C series model for very steep terrain. The unique horizontal levelling feature can compensate for lateral inclinations of up to 38%. When driving uphill, the slope compensation will level out inclines of up to 35%. The Fendt 5275 C SL is now also available in Spain and Romania.

Connectivity for Fendt IDEAL and straw walker combine harvesters

Fendt combine harvesters from the Fendt IDEAL, Fendt C and Fendt L series can now be equipped with the central Fendt Connect telemetry system. Fendt Connect helps you to manage your fleet wherever you are and optimise your machine settings. Customers can use their PC or smart device to view and analyse their own machine data, including machine position and its CAN bus data, such as engine speed, fuel and AdBlue consumption and machine speed. This helps you plan your harvesting processes faster and more efficiently. Fendt IDEAL customers can view harvest data including yield, moisture and machine settings to check machine utilisation more precisely.

Fendt Connect also unlocks up additional services offered by dealerships. With the consent of the vehicle owner, the dealer can access the machine data. A quick overview of upcoming service intervals or checking error codes makes maintenance work on the machine easier and reduces downtime during harvesting. The customer always retains ownership of their machine data. Operating statistics and agronomic data are neither stored nor transmitted. The entire process meets the strict regulations of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Fendt Connect comes as standard on the Fendt IDEAL and is available as an optional extra for C and L series Fendt straw walker combine harvesters.

Centre of Excellence for harvesting solutions in Breganze increases production capacities

The demand for Fendt combine harvesters has increased significantly in recent years. In response to this trend, the combine plant in Breganze, Veneto, underwent the most extensive renovation work in the Italian site's history last year. The entire production, including upstream and downstream areas, was entirely restructured and expanded; parts production, logistics and the entire assembly line were all revamped. Both the Fendt IDEAL and E, L & C series straw walker combine harvesters can now be manufactured on the assembly line at the same time. The system is akin to the tractor production line in Marktoberdorf.
